Fabric Details
Aqua Classic™ FabricAqua Classic™ Fabric
This is where it all started! We set out to develop a superior UPF 50+ swim fabric that didn’t feel heavy or rubbery like scuba rash guards. The result is a technically elegant, sun-safe swim fabric that is chlorine and saltwater resistant with a modest 4-way stretch. It’s silky smooth on the inside with a figure-flattering matte surface on the exterior. Customers love our Aqua Classic because it’s lightweight, quick dry and comfortable.

Coolibar’s sun protective clothing is designed to be worn in the sun and to provide excellent UV protection. If you have any questions about size, fit or style, talk to one of our Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-926-6509. They'll be happy to help, as well as offer expert advice on coordinating sunscreen hats with your wardrobe.

Due to the range of fabrics and styles, each hat fits slightly different. See individual hat circumferences in the Highlights section of the product page. Our One Size hats are designed to fit most.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR HAT SIZE: Measure around your head, from the center of your forehead, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.


Circumference (inches) 6 - 7 7 - 8 ½ 8 ½ - 10

Measure circumference of hand around fullest part just below the knuckles, excluding thumb. Use right hand if right handed, and left hand if left-handed. Measure hand in inches and refer to the sizing chart for your glove size. Use the larger number to determine your size. People with extra long fingers, or who would like a looser fit should consider ordering a size up.

PLEASE NOTE: The measurements on our size chart are very similar to most major clothing companies. However, we generally allow for a relaxed fit - geared for outdoor activity, travel or a casual outing. Pants, skirts, blouses and polo shirts have extra room for comfort and are not body hugging.

When fitting jackets, cover-ups or any outerwear, our fit model is wearing the appropriate under layers that we would expect you to be wearing. You do not have to "size up" - we have done that for you.


Never try to measure yourself. Seek the help of a companion and use a soft tape measure.

  • Height: Stand in stocking feet, with feet together, back to the wall. Measure from top of head to the floor.
  • Arm: Bend arm to 90 degrees. Place hand on hip. Start at center of back of neck. Measure across the shoulder to the elbow and down to the wrist. Number of inches equals your sleeve length.
  • Bust/Chest: With the arms relaxed down at sides, measure fullest part of bust/chest, keeping tape parallel to floor.
  • Hip: Stand with heels together, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
  • Neck: Measure around base of the neck (the lowest point of the neck). Number of inches equals the neck size.
  • Inseam: Take a pair of pants that fits you well. Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom hem. Number of inches equal inseam length.
  • Rise: Start the tape at the center back waist, run the tape between your legs, pulling comfortably at the crotch and up your natural waist. Total measurement is your rise.
  • Waist: Measure around your waist, against your skin (not over your shirt or pants) at the height you normally wear your pants.
  • Head: Measure around your head, from the center of your forehead, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the newer waistband! I like these swim shorts, especially the new style. They're comfortable and don't bag in the water. Nice color (navy). I live in Southeastern North Carolina; these are great in the ocean or pool. I always get compliments on what I purchase from Coolibar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfy I ordered an XS and I love the soft, breathable material but the fit was a little off. The waist and legs fit fine, but the crotch area was baggy and just seemed like there was too much fabric there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work for me I had to return these even though the fabric felt good. They looked funny on me - I think my thighs are to small and he shorts looked wrinkled on my legs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One issue with fit... I’m 5’5”, 125#, often wear small but wanted these swim shorts to be comfy so bought a medium. They fit ok (waist is a bit big for me), but... how can I say this? The mid-crotch seam looks like it is cutting / strangling.... bulges both sides, if you know what I mean. I’m wearing a long swim tshirt that covers the crotch so don’t mind. It doesn’t feel at all tight, just looks tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Florida and vacations Bought a small. I'm 5'4" 137 lbs. Fit is perfect and perfect for Florida living! Looking forward to wearing on cruises. Love the lightweight feel. Can wear as spandex shorts or as swim shorts. The black and white matches any color put with it! I bought the poppy red swim shirt to wear with it!!! It looks great together! Just remember to wear sunblock on chest, neck, face and lower legs that are exposed. I also bought the black sunhat on sale for $19.99 and it looks great with the entire outfit. Buy a large in the hat, it runs small! Just sayin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly light and comfortable These are not the typical swimsuit fabric-somewhat lighter, quite stretchy, very comfortable. The lightweight fabric is not as modest as board shorts or Lycra swimwear, and if you are looking for strong compression these are not for you. I like them - wear them all day - good on the beach, good in the water. I think they run about a size large so I may reorder smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I am 5'3.5" tall. My waist is 30.5", hips 41.5". To be exact, my thighs measure 25" around. So my major problem when buying clothes is a loose waist and tight legs. I trusted the size chart and purchased a large. These fit so well! And they were not cut so low that I couldn't squat down. I would have been able to give a review of how much I had enjoyed wearing them on vacation, if it had not taken over 2 weeks for them to arrive.....but I can tell I'll get a lot of use out of them for swimming and diving. Order with confidence, but order early!
